A-B-C introduces the Model 49X decaser that automatically unloads and single files reverse tapered glass bottles from club store display cases, providing a simple and versatile means for wine and spirits bottlers to supply this growing market with display-ready product. The Model 49X also unloads standard bottles from RCS and HSC cases, providing maximum versatility for all market requirements. A hybrid of two A-B-C decaser models that are proven in production, the Model 49X gently unloads and single files reverse tapered bottles at high speed up to 50 cases per minute (300 bpm in both 6 and 12 pack configurations) utilizing a single filing section with a series of multiple tabletop chains that easily separate the bottles at high speed while maintaining complete bottle control and stability.
The Model 49X has special features to unload half depth display cases containing full height partitions with ease, making this machine an economical alternative to lift-out uncasers that cost twice as much. As cases are lifted from the bottles, they are transported by motorized belts backed by duro-soft rollers that adjust to variations in case and partition dimensions and ensure secure and easy transport. After the bottles are unloaded, the major case flaps are folded back to pre-break the scores, reducing the flap spring-back memory thus conditioning the flaps for case packing and resulting in a more efficient case packing operation.
